Other user descriptions
Bloemfontein (Afrikaans and Dutch, Bloem Fountain (Flor) or Flower Power, pronounced / blʊmfɒnteɪn /) is one of the three capitals of South Africa, along with Pretoria and Cape Town. Bloemfontein is the judicial capital of the country, as well as the capital of the Free State province. The Sesotho name of the city is Mangaung, which means "the place where cheetahs dwell". Bloemfontein is popular and poetically known as the city of roses, because of the abundance of these flowers as the annual festival of roses takes place there. Although Bloemfontein has a reputation for its flowers in an otherwise arid region, the name of the city argued by some to refer to Jan Bloem (1775-1858), a Korana Griqua leader whose people inhabited (and still living) areas of the Commonwealth and Northern Cape. Others see this proposition as a vanity, a manifestation of political correctness and a retrospective reconstruction of history. The British colonial authorities did not name locations used by local Aborigines. The city is situated on the dry plain at 29 ° 06'S 26 ° 13'E, at an altitude of 1,395 meters above sea level. The city has about 370,000 inhabitants, while the Mangaung Local Municipality has a population of nearly 650,000. Bloemfontein has an airport. It is a center of trade, furniture, glassware and textiles.
